In this work, the bacterial strains Streptococcus mutans, Lactobacillaceae, and Streptococcus sobrinus were employed during the antibacterial test.
Pyrosequencing of those biofilms detected Propionibacteriaceae, Methylobacteriaceae, Lactobacillaceae, and Streptococcaceae which were also present in biofilms one and two in our study [4].
The NS-W and NS-L samples had 3 families in common that were not associated with NS-F2, while one family (Lactobacillaceae) was shared by only the NS-W and NS-F2 sea slugs.
